1- Get a plastic barrel that can be cut up. Take a skill-saw or other cutting tool to cut the barrel in half.

2- Get 2 U shaped bolts to bolt it onto the dolly. Simple.

Step 1: Now Just Use in Areas Required.

I don't own a wheelbarrow, so this conversion has helped me so much doing work in the garden.

Step 2: New Planters

Do the same again. Take the other half barrel and cut in half again and screw it onto a back board. Then fill with compost and plant lovely flowers etc once the spring comes.

So one barrel has made a wheelbarrow and 2 planters. All for free.

<p>Would be much better it was the kind of hand cart that was equipped with four wheels.</p>
<p>The two wheel makes it easier to tip when using it for stones etc. The 4 wheels would be good for lugging stuff around. I happened to have a 2 wheel cart, so that's what I ended up using.</p>

<p>Nice idea.<br><br>Could add some handles so that you don&rsquo;t have to bend down too far to reach the bars. <br></p>
